In this post I’d like to tell you about my time setting up an experiment at Maude’s Market in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. I met Maude at a Pecha Kucha event a couple of years ago and she expressed interest in letting me try out one of my experiments in her garden.
As you know, one of my goals is to try out multiple forms of electroculture on different types of plants to see what works. In its history, it has been used with great success on a wide variety of plants including wheat, turnips, potatoes, tomatoes, and more. In this experiment I’m using 3 volts DC to power a 10 foot section or so of raised bed. We installed the system today and she is planning on planting onions and potatoes in the bed using a ‘lasagna‘ approach to keeping weeds down through the layering-on of compost and hay.
As you can see in the above photo, it’s on a raised mound covered in hay. So far, there is really nothing else to show besides the solar power supply in the background. As growth progresses, I’ll be sure to give you updates.
As a reminder, if any of you are doing experiments on your own, send in your pictures along with a description of what you’re working on and I’ll post it here.
